Makhanda ECD Activities

Activities

While doing the activities allow your child to complete the task as independently as possible. Use encouraging phrases to keep them engaged longer!

Rhymes

The rhymes we've provided are different in all three languages. All of them are simple enough to try learn them all if you want to! The aim of rhymes is to develop your child's rhythm and memory (for formal reading later on in their schooling). 

Stories

Demonstrate (model) good use of language to your child by reading often. Encourage lots of talking - ask questions!
What do you think think will happen next? What do you see in the picture? Why did...?

Movement

All activities provided help develop core motor skills needed for literacy, such as hand-eye coordination, crossing the midline and direction (among others). Let your child master it.
